of here, already. that hurt him, i think, in his re-election bid against bill clinton back in 1992. it is part of the game. it is what goes on. but i think these debates are going to be really, really important for that, 6%, 7%, 8% who are legitimately undecided or switchable, haven't completely made up their minds. they're going to be watching the three presidential debates, the one vice presidential debate in october. and they'll make up their minds. i think all the people who are voting now early, they basically have already made up their minds obviously. that's why they're voting early and they're not going to necessarily -- they don't think they'll be influenced by the debates. maybe some of them will be. but it will be too late for them because they already will have voted. >> well, let's talk about some of the polls and whether they're indications of anything. particularly these polls that give us a glimpse of three of the nine swing states. journal marist poll showing romney trailing the president by 7 points in new hampshire. romney trailing obama by two points in north ca
, former pollster to president bill clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host. both fox news contributors. good to have you this morning. hi, there. is that true, doug? i mean that they're skewing, that they're showing higher turnout, those polls are assuming a higher democratic turnout now than in '08 when we know it was huge? >> yes, that is correct. that is part of the story and only part of the story. martha: okay. >> the obama lead is a real one. it is not a lead that would disappear if the polls were weighted in a slightly different direction. but that being said, in the state of ohio, for example, where they have a plus 8 democratic skew, in 2004 it, was a plus 5 republican skew. now i don't expect that we're going to go back as far as we did in '04, martha, but i do think that a 3, 4, 5, point democratic bulk would be right, that means the obama lead woo come down 3, 4, 5 points. there is some bias. obama is still ahead nonetheless. martha: lots to talk about here. monica, there are those who would look at this situation and all the outcry over the polls and say, when
who will be here wednesday, bill clinton, the former president stumping for barack obama. you ask what the polls look like. this is from american research group. you can see the president with a five point advantage within that survey psychology error. another poll had a slightly larger advantage for the president. it's competitive here in new hampshire. >> the debates are so critical. it's hard to say whether these debates are more important than other debates we've heard. what are the candidates doing and have to accomplish in terms of hitting home their major points? >> reporter: exactly. so much on the line wednesday night when president obama and mitt romney showed up for the first time since colorado. what are they doing today? mitt romney in massachusetts preparing and the president in washington. they are probably doing debates with their stand-ins. senator rob portman is doing the sta stand-in for mitt romney and done it in the past. and they go back to massachusetts. who better than a massachusetts politician to play mitt romney. that person is senator john kerry, the senior
president was down nine points in mid-september and was tied with bill clinton by the end of october. the clinton eventually won. former clinton pollster is questioning the assumptions being made in today's polls. >> these polls are assuming that you have the same high level of african-american, latino and young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. >> obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod said they widely vary so when they all pointed in one direction, they are all wrong. but we are planning for a close race as we always have. another democratic strategist offered this assessment. >> the race isn't over. this can move back three or four times between now and november 6th. >> romney you try to create that momentum. >> of the eight presidential races where the leads were cut or flipped by the opponent, average of comebacks was roughly 35% and in some cases it was the debate that moved the needle. >> gregg: as a reminder we are daig days away from that first presidential debate. we'll have live coverage of the event hosted by megyn kelly and bret baier. that is coming up righ
